A fun filled, packed calendar of activities is in store for Kedron Scouts in 2020. Would you like to be part of it?
The weekly meetings commence on Wednesday 29 January with Joeys, Wednesday Cubs and Scouts. Venturers resume on Friday 31 January; Rovers on Sunday 2 February and the Monday Cubs return on Monday 3 February.
Two of our Rovers will receive their Baden Powell (BP) Awards. These ceremonies and presentation of their Awards marks their commitment and work to achieve these Awards.
The New Youth Program kicks in from 2020. This means all of our scouts can take part in new fun, adventurous and challenging activities. Such a great time to be in Scouting…
Some of our Kedron Cubs are preparing themselves for the Queensland Cuboree, six days of camping and activities in Maryborough in September. This year’s theme is World Tour- so the sky is the limit.
Over 1,000 cubs will navigate real life experiences of personal growth such as sharing a tent, looking after their own personal gear and themselves, and learning to be ready on time. Each day, the cubs will head to a different base where experienced leaders take them through a series of activities. Sometimes they travel off-base to activities such as whale watching.
A number of our Kedron Scouts and their Leaders have been planning to travel to England for the Essex International Jamboree.
This is a first-time event for Kedron Scouts and a golden opportunity. One of our scout leaders is the Australian Contingent Leader and the Kedron Scouts heading off on this adventure have attended a Cuboree and the Australian Scout Jamboree - these experiences have led them to go International!
Each term, a program is developed for each of our scouting sections and includes camps and outings. One of the elements of the New Youth Program is that planning and implementing activities is Youth-led, so our youth play a major part in organising these activities.
Our Joey Scouts (5-7yo) will be head off on a weekend camp in the first term, including bush walks, cooking, craft and water play. Some of their weekly activities this year will be learning about Wild Dogs, the Antarctic and Nutrition…and they can earn badges along the way.
The gateway to Scouting can be entered at any age. No previous family Scouting experience is needed; the leaders are there to ensure your child finds their place in scouting and travels their own journey. Scouting is so diversified that your child will be able to choose and meet the challenges of what interests them. The Scouting traditions of camping, cooking, bushwalking, fun, adventure and personal growth remain. Onto this they will make friends for life. This is what makes Scouting so great.
